Coping with Challenging Situations in Dementia Care- Virtual Event

August 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free Virtual Event

Target Audience: Nurses, Nursing Home Staff, at home Caregivers and anyone affected by dementia

Speaker: Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA

This session is designed to help care partners better understand why the person they are trying to help may at times exhibit ‘challenging behaviors.’ It will focus on looking beyond the disease to recognize other possible factors that may be causing or contributing to the challenges. Care partners will be introduced to the ‘six pieces of the puzzle’ that may be used to help determine these contributing factors. This problem-solving approach will be presented to help learners reduce the intensity, frequency, or occurrence of challenges. This session will also help learners develop better communication skills when working with people living with dementia by emphasizing the value of empathetic and supportive communication. The overall goal of the session is to reduce or minimize unproductive conversations and resistive behaviors by using effective verbal and physical skills.
